Duration: 8+ hours of video instruction
This course will help you prepare for the Unity Certified Programmer exam, the professional certification for entry to mid-level Unity programmers. Unity is used to create real-time 3D applications for many industries, including video games, automotive, architecture, film, training, and more. In this course, you will be challenged to solve realistic Unity programming problems that are aligned to topics covered on the exam. Throughout the course, you will build the foundation for a 2D action video game: AsteraX. In doing so, you will practice many of the skills covered in the exam, including evaluating scripting needs from a project requirements document, implementing the three "C's" of an interactive applications (Character, Controls, Camera), providing user feedback through basic UI elements, and applying professional programming practices like developer testing.
Over 8 hours of video instruction. This series of courses covers six topic areas distributed over four courses. These topics include programming core interactions, working in the art pipeline, developing application systems, programming for scene and environment design, optimizing for performance and platforms, and working in professional software development teams. The format of these courses are project and activity based and participants will need to feel comfortable individually programming in Unity. Participants will be challenged to build two complete Unity projects, implementing core interactivity, supporting systems, and platform optimizations.
